Hayley is a Ghost

Well I wasn’t expecting that

Posted on: September 3, 2010

You people are crazy! I mean that in a nice way though.

Yesterday when I set up the donation page after Karl Mamer (the conspiracy skeptic) said he wanted to donate some funds towards buying me a ticket to the amazing QED conference I did so thinking I wouldn’t get much.

I though perhaps I’d receive a generous £40 or many £50 to help with the cost of my ticket from different people. Which would be awesome and in my head I had calculated how much I would have to put back each month to put towards the overall cost once the kind donations had been added.

I was really excited and genuinely grateful at the kindness of people I had only met online.

So imagine my surprise yesterday evening when I checked my email inbox to discover that I had received over £150 in donations from people.

Tickets cost £99 so I was able to buy a ticket which was awesome. This was late last night and shortly afterwards I went to bed and forgot to close down the donation page and link.

I woke up this morning to find even more money in my donation fund. Enough to cover the cost of my accommodation, which blew my mind.

I have now closed the donation page – after less than 24 hours, because I cannot believe how generous people were. I am so grateful to everybody who helped me. It means the only thing I have to worry about paying for is my travel cost and that’s going to be fine.

It also means I was able to add a few days onto my accommodation stay so I will now be able to visit some sites in the North that hold some significance to my heritage as well as meeting friends I have only ever spoken to online. I am so excited.

I genuinely cannot thank you enough. QED here I come!
